Carolina Horse Park’s Painted Ponies have made their downtown debut, each of them claiming a spot on both sides of Broad Street. Maybe you’ve driven past one, or maybe you’ve snapped a selfie — regardless, these works of art are hard to miss.

ICYMI: The Painted Ponies are fiberglass horses that are painted by local artisans. Southern Pines businesses sponsor these ponies, and until spring, they remain on display. The Painted Ponies will be rallied up in April and sold at an auction that benefits Carolina Horse Park.

If you want to pick and choose what pony to see IRL, here’s a list of all 15, their names, sponsors and where to find them. If you live like a hermit (no judgement) or don’t want to make the trek downtown, here’s what you’re missing.
